Fielding Statistics

Postby greenandgold » Mon Oct 01, 2007 8:04 pm

I am discussing fielding statistics with one of my friends after he pointed out that the Colorado Rockies set a MLB record for fielding percentage this year. I was explaining how some players with bigger range can get short changed by the fielding percentage stat because they have extra and more difficult chances and I want to give him some stats to compare.

Does anyone know where I can get extended fielding statistics for this year? Stuff that incorporates range.

Thanks in advance.

It doesn't matter, the best hitting teams win. Fielding= less than 10% of the game.

I can accept pitching as at least as much as hitting. As long as you are not arguing that fielding is a large portion of the game (or even close to hitting or pitching), I'm okay with it.

Fielding is a large chunk of the game, not as large as pitching or hitting, but it certainly is an important factor that often gets overlooked.

A free stat you can use is range factor.
